Located in the highly international and diverse community of Miami, Florida, the Department of Educational and Psychological Studies (EPS) housed in the School of Education and Human Development prepares reflective leaders, researchers, methodologists, and practitioners to improve psychological, educational, and community well-being. At EPS we educate mental health counselors, marriage and family therapists, researchers and doctoral-level psychologists in an APA accredited program. In addition, we offer an undergraduate major in Human and Social Development which prepares students for masters and doctoral level studies in counseling and related fields.
The Department of EPS is made up of the following five master's programs: Mental Health Counseling, Marriage and Family Therapy, Community and Social Change, Research, Measurement and Evaluation, and Higher Education Leadership. We also offer a post-Master's Certificate Latino Mental Health Program aimed at enhancing clinical skills in the assessment and treatment of Latino clients. The Department of EPS offers four doctoral programs: Counseling Psychology, Research, Measurement and Evaluation, Higher Education Leadership, and Community Well-Being. In addition, we have a Community and Educational Well-Being Research Center (CEW) that promotes individual, interpersonal, institutional, and community well-being by studying the educational, psychological, physical, and social determinants of well-being.
